    Mine might be just the thing you're looking for!


    That looks really nice! I don't think I can use it though, as I'm using in older MC version. (Pre-1.5 doesn;t seem to be supported my many anymore.)

    Not sure if it's what you want but based on the packs you mentioned these two might also be worth looking at if you haven't already. They are definitely darker and different than the average packs. Broken Anachronism (surreal steampunk) Mythos (lovecraftian horror)

    Broken Anachronism is wonderful, but I can't find an old enough version of it either. Mythos is very good on it's own, and I found a version I can use, though it doesn't quite match what I'm after.

    Quote from Rayvolution
    I'm not sure how a Myst kinda pack could be created, I only say this because of the concept of Myst itself with it's "many worlds". Every world is so drastically different from the next, I'm unsure how you could compile them all into one central theme. Although, maybe if it was based on one specific place? Like the main Myst island?


    I'm not sure how to explain it myself, but Myst and Riven do have a certain look about them for me that easily let's me identify them. Mostly it would be in the warmth of the overall color, and things like turning the cloth blocks into mechanical vanity type ones. Like I said, I;m not quite sure how to explain it.

    Something that looks like it would fit in the games universe, not necessarily something that looks exactly like any of the games.

    Or resource packs as they seem to be called now. ^^
    The few I've found have not been of very good quality. I'm basically looking for something to emulate the style of Myst/Riven. Dark colors, lots of contraptions, half mechanical half natural kind of feel.

    The two I've found that are closest are Derivation and Glimmars Steampunk, and while very nice and close to what I'm after, aren't quite perfect.

    Are there any others the community knows of that might fit this description? If not, I'm content with the former two, just thought it'd be best to plumb the community's knowledge a bit. ^^

    Thanks!

    This is very very cool.
    May seem like a small insubstantial thing, but the enhanced freedom of customization and creativity is something I'l always support.

    I'm sure this is going to rub texture makers the wrong way though.

    Get Morrowind, mod the ever loving hell out of it.

    I'm pretty sure you can get most of those listen from the vanilla game and mods.

    Thank you very much!
    This looks to be about as close as I feel I'm going to get to what I'm looking for.

    I use a lot of different texture packs for all the different worlds I play, so unfortunately I really am looking for something that will be compatible across all of them, hence the need for a biome mod that uses the default textures.

    Maybe instead try a different texturepack with support for the mod of your choice? Soartex for example had support for extrabiomes in 1.4.7 and support for ExtrabiomesXL and Biomes o' plenty in 1.5.2


    Thank you for the response.

    I'm aware there are a few packs that are compatible, but none of them are ones I really have interest in using unfortunately.

    That is something you could use with any texture pack and it wouldn't look out of place when you wander into a special biome the mod added that uses it's own textures.

    I've had Biomes a Plenty for sometime, but this very issue has started to bother me so I'm hoping to upgrade to something a little less of an eyesore. : ]

    I've seen BicBiome Craft and Extra Biomes XL but they don't say if they use the default textures.
    It also needs to be 1.4.7 compatible.

    Quote from Xetron

    I'm having trouble finding recent metal bands that I enjoy. Seems like the only bands I can tolerate anymore are The Big Four: , (All Metallica. That includes Load, Reload, S&M, Some Kind of Monster AND Death Magnetic. Not the picky boys who only like the first 4 albums), (R.I.P Mr. Hanneman) and . Oh, and don't forget and .


    If you enjoy Overkill, you may like Havok, Exodus(Early stuff, anything with Baloff or Zetro), and Municipal Waste
    For Slayer, you may enjoy Warbringer and Torture Squad
    I've always found Bonded By Bloods first album to be rather similar riff-wise to Megadeth.

    Yeah Jeff passing hit me like a knife to the gut.
    I know he'd been out of commission for something on the order of a few years now from a spider bite on his hand, and Arya and King were saying they weren't sure when he'd be able to come back.

    Then he just passes from liver failure.
    ­ing weird man.
